One Session to stop
Smoking cessation is the process of stopping smoking tobacco, tobacco smoke contains Nicotine and can cause dependence.
Nicotine often makes the process of quitting difficult.
In the United States about 70% of smokers would like to quit smoking, and 50% report having tried to do so in the past year.
Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide. Tobacco cessation significantly reduces the risk of dying from tobacco-related diseases such as coronary heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer. Due to its link to many chronic diseases, cigarette smoking has been restricted in many public areas.
Many strategies can be used for smoking cessation, including abruptly quitting without assistance (“cold turkey”) Most smokers who try to quit do so without assistance. However, only 3-6% of quit attempts without assistance are successful long-term.
There are more than 7,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke. More than 70 of those chemicals are linked to cancer. Some can cause heart disease, lung disease, or other serious health problems, too. Most of the substances come from the burning tobacco leaves themselves, not from additives included in cigarettes (or other tobacco products).
Some of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke include:
- Nicotine (the addictive drug that produces the effects in the brain that people are looking for)
- Hydrogen cyanide.
E-cigarettes and similar devices
E-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) have become extremely popular in recent years, especially among younger people. They are sometimes used as substitutes for cigarettes or other tobacco products, but for many people, they are the first tobacco product used.
Makers of e-cigarettes and other ENDS often claim the ingredients are safe. But the aerosols (mixtures of very small particles) that these products produce can contain addictive nicotine, flavourings, and a variety of other chemicals, some known to be toxic or to cause cancer.
The levels of many of these substances appear to be lower than in traditional cigarettes, but the amounts of nicotine and other substances in these products can vary widely because they are not standardized. The long-term health effects of these devices are not yet known.
Hypnotherapy can help you to stop smoking is by implanting suggestions into your subconscious mind whilst you are in a trance. When you are in a trance you will not be asleep, you will be very relaxed and comfortable in an altered state of awareness. Your unconscious mind will be ready to accept suggestions that are beneficial for you and agreed before the hypnosis session is started.
If you are really ready to stop smoking, then one session should do the trick!

Just an update after having my hypnotherapy on Saturday morning. I haven’t had a cigerrette and haven’t given it a thought. The only time I think about having a cigarette is after I’ve eaten but it lasts for a split second and the feeling is good as quickly as it comes.
I am out for drinks on Saturday so that’ll be the real test for me. But feeling happy and confident with the results so thank you!
Just wanted to thank you , it’s been 5 months since I no longer smoke or crave cigarettes . Seemed to be impossible, but you made it happen. Couldn’t be any happier!
Thank you again, I’d definitely recommend your name to my friends !
